    Hey guys, wanted to update on something I've been working on with Brandon and Mark from Deatschwerks. A few months ago, I started hearing word of an LPFP in the works for the 10-19 Taurus SHO. Many of you know I run the XDI35 HPFP with stock remaining system on E74, and start seeing fuel starvation issues up in the top of the powerband. Since I have worked with Mark in the past, I reached out to him regarding the pump, and he put me in touch with Brandon at R&D.

    I know of a few people running the DW300C on the 10-12 cars and it is advertised as a drop in unit, but I couldn't find much data for the 13+ cars, so we used @Jordan_R as a guinea pig to see how the pump worked. The pump had horrible fitment issues, the electrical connector was completely different, and Jordan ended up actually breaking the discharge snout on the pump trying to get it together.

    A quick call up to Brandon found that there are actual physical differences between the two pump modules, so I bought an OEM 2013+ fuel pump module and sent it with them. They've had the module for about a week now, and called today to let me know they've modified the kit to be 13+ SHO Specific and it will be drop in, but will require splicing of the electrical connector since as far as we can tell the OE fuel pump electrical connector is proprietary, as my Ford rep and I spent close to 2 hours in the Motorcraft connector pigtail catalog trying to find a match.

    They are pulling it back apart to develop an install guide, and then they plan to get flow data before sending it back to me.

    All-in-all, I'm excited to bring this to market, and will be adding it to our site for purchase as soon as we get it back.

    Most excellent as Bill and Ted would exclaim.

    Chris was let go at the beginning of July, so there is a chance that nothing was ever finalized or documented. According to Brandon, the only one they've ever done in house was for Randy Baird, and that is the system the previously labeled 10-17 Kit was developed from.

    Really random, not really sure where to bring it up. Here seems good.

    The 3.0L in the Continental and MKZ (I believe these two are the same from memory) has one fuel pump module, but two fuel pumps and 2 driver modules.

    I dont know if they can be modified for the SHO.
